Home Office Improvement

If you do work from home, you shall spend more time improving your home office and making your home office space more “habitable”. You will have a good mood and less stress every day. Giving the zone a bit more personalized design will help you separate your life and work too. Additionally, some use of tech can boost your daily productivity. Now let’s jump in!

Get Ergonomic Furniture

I remember that I read a Reddit post before and the OP asked for advice on how he or she shall spend the home office arrangement budget given by the company. Although it’s a really nice bonus, it’s not a huge amount of money that you can buy everything for the whole setup. So what is the priority? The most upvoted answer is: to get yourself a nice ergonomic chair and a height adjustable desk.

If you are working regularly 6 to 8 hours during weekdays, you’re spending about a quarter of your life on your workstation. That’s something serious. Making the space friendly and healthy to stay, instead of making it harmful, you’ll be doing a great favor to your body and health. Besides ergonomic chairs and desks, you can try something new with your monitor stand, laptop stand, keyboard, and mouse, and maybe try a footrest.

Integrate a KVM Switch

KVM switch is a game-changer for professionals who use multiple computers or devices in their work setup. This smart device allows you to control multiple computers using a single set of keyboard, mouse, and monitor. For a more advanced KVM switch, there is even a docking station built into it and it provides more powerful connectivity to your whole setup.

With a KVM switch, you can seamlessly switch between different computers without the hassle of connecting and disconnecting cables or switching positions. This can make your workflow more smooth, productive without disruption and enable you to focus on your tasks. A KVM switch will help make your space more ergonomic too, since you don’t have to move your gesture, going from here and there to different devices. You just work on the one well-arranged setup with your monitor at the right height and your body at the right distance from your desk.

Declutter Your Space

The hotshot psychologist (and YouTuber) Jordan Peterson’s slogan “Clean up your room” resonated and inspired many people. I would say the same to your home office — clean up the space.

A cluttered workspace can lead to a cluttered mind. Arrange your space and storage to keep your home office organized. Use storage solutions like shelves, cabinets, and desk organizers to keep your office supplies, documents, and personal items neatly arranged. If you are using multiple devices on the same desk, the KVM switch introduced above can help optimize your cabling too. After that, you can also spice it up with some small plants.

Apply Time Management Tools

After organizing your space, you can try to apply some time management tools or techniques to organize your workflow. They may already be popular among the public but it’s still difficult to make it a habit. But they do help improve our efficiency, so it’s worth a try.

Here are some of the time management techniques you can refer to. There are some methods to help you sort out what are your tasks, how to prioritize them, what to do to better implement them and be efficient, and how to review to always optimize your workflow.

There must be a good number of applications that are designed with these principles. Try something out. They may help you be on track and build your work habits.

Effective time management is the cornerstone of productivity, and finding

the right approach for your unique work style can make a substantial difference in your daily tasks. Here are some popular time management techniques that you can tailor to your specific needs.

Personalize Your Workspace

Make your home office a place where you enjoy spending time. Personalize it with artwork, plants, or motivational quotes that inspire you. Surrounding yourself with things you love can create a positive atmosphere, improving your mood and creativity.

Consider adding a vision board to set goals and visualize your aspirations. Or make use of scents, lightning, or music. When you feel connected to your workspace, you’re more likely to be motivated and productive.


In conclusion, creating an optimal home office environment is essential for maximizing your productivity and overall well-being. You don’t have to get everything done all at once and make yourself a perfect home office space overnight. Just make adjustment bit by bit and you’ll create a space that is most suitable to you. Happy work, happy life.
